“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.”

– Coretta Scott King, January 17, 2000


On behalf of the PTACC Executive Board and the Summit Planning Committee, we would like to join Jac Charlier in thanking everyone who came to the training summit, whether to learn, present, network, share experiences, or all of the above. Our planning committee worked long and hard to create an event that was instructional for teams at every level and pathway of deflection, and that created networking opportunities for participants. We are thrilled with the attendance and participation!

While members of the Executive Board closed out the event with thanks and recognition to all who participated, we wanted to thank you again. This important training summit provided the opportunity to bring together those who work in the field, enlisted a variety of knowledgeable presenters with important information to share, and provided data and research to show that what we do works! Continuing to build these national (and now international!) relationships and the PTACC deflection community is integral to our success, and each summit participant is an important part of this effort! Thank you again and…

See you in 2023!!
